Preparation of the AMBER integrations

C. Gil, K. Perraut, O. Preis

The Astronomical Multi-Beam Recombiner (AMBER) is a near infrared/red focal interferometric instrument. Its integration takes place in Grenoble where each sub-system is tested, aligned and the AMBER requirements validated. In a preliminary phase the environment of the AMBER integration room was characterized. Several tests were made in order to determine, and when required to reduce, environmental constraints (temperature, turbulence and vibrations of the optical table).
